A chest and triceps workout worth its salt will hit your pectoral muscles, anterior deltoids (the fronts of your shoulders), triceps and core muscles hard.

This upper-body workout uses five moves to torch these muscle groups and strengthen the upper body alongside your usual strength programs or classes. You can scale it to a time cap that suits you and, best of all, you can modify it to your personal experience level. 

We love using barbells for upper-body strength workouts, but you only need one pair of the best adjustable dumbbells to get it done. Bookmark this one for later.

Before we start, remember, building strength and developing muscle definition requires a consistent and balanced diet, ample protein intake, a regular and progressive exercise routine and factors like sleep and stress management (you know, that ‘thing’ called recovery).
